Relevant experience where I also cared for children were…I was a labor and delivery nurse in Chicago for two years, I have also interned at an outdoor preschool in Bothell. I have co-parented my two nieces, ages 3 and 6 since they were born.
Activities I enjoy doing with children…I love doing art projects, science projects, reading, playing outdoors, going on adventures really what ever the kids are into I can get down with and make it fun!
The most important part about being a nanny…Building trust with the children and the parents and being flexible—you never know what could happen so I try to be as prepared as possible.
My experience with special needs children…I have cared for two young children with Attention deficit Disorder and have cared for my younger brother who is autistic for most of his life (he’s 33 now).
My favorite nanny moment…Back in Chicago I cared for these two brothers, 1 and 2 years old and after bath time we would run around (they were naked) and sing “so fresh and so clean clean, so fresh and so clean” as I got them ready for bed. It was the sweetest!
